MPs across the south east react to Brexit defeat

The Prime Minister's humiliating defeat came on Tuesday night when Parliament rejected her Brexit proposal with a majority of 149.

Labour is set to help block a no deal Brexit tonight in another crunch vote in the House of Commons.

"It is hard to see what more we can do", the statement said, adding that the latest vote "significantly increased" the likelihood of a no-deal Brexit. He also said it was now "time for a general election".

She said the Government will continue to work to leave the European Union with a "good deal", adding on Mr Corbyn: "He doesn't agree with Government policy, he doesn't even agree with Labour Party policy".

"The EU has made it clear they would not accept elements of what is in the current Withdrawal Agreement without them being in a Withdrawal Agreement".

"The government's no deal impact assessment published just two weeks ago told us that "food prices are likely to increase", and that custom checks could cost business £13billion a year".

Lewes MP Maria Caulfield and Tim Loughton, East Worthing and Shoreham MP, both voted against the first deal in January, but backed Mrs May's revised withdrawal agreement last night (Tuesday March 12).

The government also announced it will not introduce any new checks or controls, or require customs declarations for any goods moving from across the border from Ireland to Northern Ireland if the United Kingdom leaves the European Union without a deal.

But although she managed to convince about 40 Tory MPs to change their mind, it was not almost enough to overturn the historic 230 vote defeat she suffered on the same deal in January.


Some of her colleagues around the Cabinet table think it shows she has to tack to a closer deal with the EU.

She will tell MPs whether she will vote for no deal or not when she opens Wednesday's debate.

"He used to believe that too, why is he just trying to frustrate it?"

"If the deal is defeated tonight it is impossible to imagine that the prime minister would allow this to drift into next week, when Oliver Letwin will table a bill for the House of Commons to take over the negotiating process".

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn called for a general election to be held so the public can decide if they want him to implement his own Brexit plan, which would keep the United Kingdom in a customs union with the EU.

Ms Phillips said: "To me she looks like a rabbit in the headlights, she looks like someone who isn't actually willing to say the real facts and say this is really bad for the country".

Boris Johnson is among leadership candidates sizing up their chances.

Mr Boles added the PM must go as soon as a deal is agreed.
